Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 53636-53637 [2018-23220]

Download as PDF 53636 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 206 / Wednesday, October 24, 2018 / Notices include data from an external data source, no later than: (1) 180 days after the end of the 30-day comment period if CMS receives no written comments from the community; and (2) 180 days after the end of the 30-day rebuttal period if CMS receives written comments from the community, regardless of whether the physicianowned hospital submitting the request submits a rebuttal statement (§ 411.362(c)(5)(ii)). If we grant the request for an exception to the prohibition on expansion of facility capacity, the expansion may occur only in facilities on the hospital’s main campus and may not result in the number of operating rooms, procedure rooms, and beds for which the hospital is licensed to exceed 200 percent of the hospital’s baseline number of operating rooms, procedure rooms, and beds (§ 411.362(c)(6)). The CMS decision to grant or deny a hospital’s request for an exception to the prohibition on expansion of facility capacity must be published in the Federal Register in accordance with our regulations at § 411.362(c)(7). III. Hospital Exception Request As permitted by section 1877(i)(3) of the Act and our regulations at § 411.362(c), the following physicianowned hospital has requested an exception to the prohibition on expansion of facility capacity: Name of Facility: St. James Behavioral Health Hospital Inc. Location: 3136 S. Saint Landry Ave., Gonzales, Louisiana 70737–5801. Basis for Exception Request: High Medicaid Facility. We seek comments on this request from individuals and entities in the community in which the hospital is located. We encourage interested parties to review the hospital’s request, which is posted on the CMS website at: http:// www.cms.gov/Medicare/Fraud-andAbuse/PhysicianSelfReferral/Physician_ Owned_Hospitals.html. We especially welcome comments regarding whether the hospital qualifies as a high Medicaid facility. Under § 411.362(c)(3), a high Medicaid facility is a hospital that satisfies all of the following criteria: • Is not the sole hospital in the county in which the hospital is located. • With respect to each of the 3 most recent 12-month periods for which data are available as of the date the hospital submits its request, has an annual percent of total inpatient admissions under Medicaid that is estimated to be greater than such percent with respect to such admissions for any other hospital located in the county in which the hospital is located. • Does not discriminate against beneficiaries of Federal health care programs and does not permit physicians practicing at the hospital to discriminate against such beneficiaries. Individuals and entities wishing to submit comments on the hospital’s request should review the DATES and ADDRESSES sections above and state whether or not they are in the community in which the hospital is located. IV. Collection of Information Requirements This document does not impose information collection requirements, that is, reporting, recordkeeping or third-party disclosure requirements. Consequently, there is no need for review by the Office of Management and Budget under the authority of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). IV. Response to Comments Because of the large number of public comments we normally receive on Federal Register documents, we are not able to acknowledge or respond to them individually. We will consider all comments we receive by the date and time specified in the DATES section of this preamble, and, when we proceed with a subsequent document, we will respond to the comments in the preamble to that document. Dated: October 17, 2018. Seema Verma, Administrator, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.

OMB No.: 0970–0060. Description: This report is an annual activity required by statute (42 U.S.C. 8629) and Federal regulations (45 CFR 96.92) for the Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP). Submission of the completed report is one requirement for LIHEAP grantees applying for Federal LIHEAP block grant funds. Grantees required to complete the Long Format of the Household Report are required to report statistics for the previous Federal fiscal year on: • Assisted and applicant households, by type of LIHEAP assistance; • Assisted and applicant households, by type of LIHEAP assistance and poverty level; • Assisted households receiving nominal payments of $50 or less; • Assisted households receiving only utility payment assistance; • Assisted households, regardless of the type(s) of LIHEAP assistance, excluding households that only receive nominal payments of $50 or less; • Assisted households, by type of LIHEAP assistance, having at least one vulnerable member who is at least 60 years or older, disabled, or five years old or younger; • Assisted households, regardless of the type(s) of LIHEAP assistance, having at least one member 60 years or older, disabled, or five years old or younger. Grantees required to complete the Short Format of the Household Report are required to submit data only on the number of households receiving heating, cooling, energy crisis, or weatherization benefits. The information is being collected for the Department’s annual LIHEAP report to Congress. The data also provides information about the need for LIHEAP funds. Finally, the data are used in the calculation of LIHEAP performance measures under the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993. The additional data elements will improve the accuracy of measuring LIHEAP targeting performance and LIHEAP cost efficiency. ACF published a Federal Register notice on August 17, 2018 soliciting 60 days of public comment on the renewal of the LIHEAP Household Report without any changes.
